Just wanted to know if you guy hunt on days that are really windy? For instance today a clipper went thru last night and now the winds are from 15-20 mph. Usually if it's forcast to be windy I try and get out as early as I can before the wind really gets up. Just wondering if I should stay longer. Keep in mind I'm east of the big river and I know all you guys out west have a windy day everyday.

I don't mind hunting in the wind if it is not more than 20 mph. I have hunted in some major wind upwards of 30 to 40 mph and have actually called in dogs. I only hunt in high winds if we are in a contest. It can be done you just have to get down in the thick stuff where they are hanging out and have some patients.

Keep in mind, coyotes have exceptionaly hearing. We have an upper frequency limit of 20 kHz where a coyote has 80!! Even though the sound travel is limited on really windy days, it's still traveling far enough to call in yotes especially if you're calling into a cross wind. I like to target coyotes that are bedded up out of the wind so the responses are going to be quick. On days like that, I'll spend of a max. of 10 minutes per set and cover lots of grounds trying to find where they're at.
